his IIM-B graduates focus is on child assessment in schools

The placement season at premiere institutions such as the Indian Institute of Management–Bangalore (IIM-B) is where salary packages worth lakhs or even crores are negotiated.

Which is why it is not every day that one gets to hear of students opting out of the process to set out on an adventure of their own.

Aditya Kulkarni, a student of 2011-2013 batch at IIM-B, is one among this elite group, who has opted out of the ongoing final placement season.

Mr. Kulkarni, a 25-year-old from Nashik, Maharashtra, told The Hindu on Wednesday that he had no regrets about passing over the opportunity.
